Re: Snatch technique

You power snatched it, and you have another 50 pounds easily in your pull because you're getting the bar PLENTY HIGH, so congrats and be happy about it! If you want advice, then just keep it simple. Keep working the mobility (its just your ankles!) and work on keeping the bar close. Find a cue that works for you, maybe think elbows high and outside. The major flaw right now is a big bar swing out in front that is bringing the weight back very aggressively over head and making it difficult to control overhead. Keep working on it and you'll be fine!
